I can still feel you



Udaipur - Jan 2012

Shimmering sunrise, heartwarming sunsets
Calm waters, chilly breeze
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

City walks, strangers and talk
Some serendipity, some delight
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

Narrow lanes, princely feel
Pitch dark skies, illuminated sights
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

Wandering souls, togetherness and love
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

I want you by my side


Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco - August 2009

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco - August 2009

I want you by my side
On a quiet escape
To find solace
In an unknown place
With you right by my side

I want you by my side
To weather through
A a thunderstorm
On a voyage
With you right by my side

I want you by my side
To cuddle through
A cold winter night
With nothing in sight
With you right by my side

I want you by my side
To chase
A distant dream
Outside our realms
With you right by my side

Try but don’t Cry


Rome - 2011

Rome - 2011

I tried but failed,
I cried and nothing changed.

I shall again try,
But this time I won’t cry.
For every time I cry,
I loose hope to try.

For I still remember,
A line from my school days
Try try and you will succeed

For every failed try I make,
I learn how not to partake.
For every chance I take,
Is my another shot at the cake.

I am Anna Hazare



Portrait of Anna Hazare by Siddharth Iyer (link below)

I have bribed a few, Took the easy way through
But all along the way, I knew I was not true

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population
Showed us how we could stand for what we believe in
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare.

I read in the books, about the father of our nation
But none after him taught me, how to put those words into action.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population
Showed us the way to put Gandhi’s words into action
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare

I watch in dismay, as bigger scams unfold everyday
But I see no punitive action. I feet robbed; I feet raped.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion.
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population,
Talked less, but prompted us to take the first step.
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare.

I was not born when freedom fighters gave their life for the nation.
But if we don’t stand up today, it would mean disrespect to their contribution.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population,
He shouted a battle cry, to fight for India, Against Corruption
And now I say no more to corruption
Bcz I am Anna Hazare

I hop… I takeoff!

I am always pre-occupied. At times when I am alone I feel I am not. It’s a strange feeling I can’t explain. Dreams, thoughts, things and todos have been clogging me for time immemorial. 

With all this in the back of my mind, I begin. Still not sure if it’s an escape or a journey. Unclear whether I am seeking or simply exploring. Not so surprisingly, where is inconsequential. It could have been anywhere. Although, time was critical. This should have happened last year but it didn’t. I am happy that I am finally taking off. Good that things happen, when they happen and how they happen. I am in no mood to complaint. 

I am in debted to all who made this possible in spirit. A doff of hat to near and dear ones. I love you and without your support I couldn’t have come out of the matrix.

About this blog

I don’t dope but the reference to ‘tripping’ is not just a coincidence. ‘Tripping’ is a blog I have started to share my thoughts as I begin a 45 day backpacking trip in Europe with Varun. Keep checking for more..:)

 

How you make me feel

Sinhagad, Maharashtra - 2010

Your thought keeps me in present,
Your thought keeps me lost.
At times I lose my sleep,
At times I find myself.

You make me feel loved,
You make me feel missed.
At times I feel apart,
At times I feel very near.

If only words could describe,
How you make me feel.
If only words could describe,
How it feels to feel complete.

You feel like a dream,
You make me feel real.
At times I don’t wanna fall asleep,
At times I don’t wanna wake up.

You make me feel high,
You make me feel low.
At times I can barely keep afloat,
At times I feel I can fly.

If only words could describe,
How you make me feel.
If only words could describe,
How it feels to feel complete.
